Comic-Con 2011: ABC Takes Off With 'Pan Am' Swag
While ABC’s jet age drama Pan Am won’t be holding a panel Q&A and screening, it will have a presence at Comic-Con.
ABC announced last week that it has dedicated a booth on the convention floor with a replica first-class cabin from a 1960s-inspired Pan Am plane. Convention-goers who visit the booth will be given a flight time and boarding pass to come back and watch a preview of the drama that bows Sunday, Sept. 25.
In addition, giveaways including replica bags inspired by those carried by airline pilots and flight attendants will be among the collectibles distributed at the booth -- #3921 on the convention floor.
The collectible bags are nearly identical to those featured on the official Pan Am Brands site and retail for $89.
Pan Am revolves around the pilots and stewardesses who worked for the landmark airliner. It’s set in the ’60s and stars Christina Ricci.
